2. Coherence: What did your child struggle with last year and how will it affect learning now?Become knowledgeable about what content comes before and after your childs current grade level.3. FluencyHas your child memorized the basic facts?

Fluent with procedures, not just facts.

Fluency enables students to understand and manipulate more complex concepts.

4.Deep Understanding: Explain WhyDoes your child really KNOW why the answer is what it is?

Teach children conceptual understanding first.Simply memorizing rules and procedures without understanding makes students unable to solve problems.All the drills in the world will not teach a math concept or idea.Do you encourage your child to DO the math that comes up in daily life?

Reinforce that not all problems are solved quickly and directly.Emphasize reasoning-not memorizing.Remind that there is not one right way to solve any math problem.Learn to recognize and connect very different ways to solve a problem.Principles and Standards for School Mathematics National Council for Teachers of Mathematics5.

Notice how you use math in everyday life and share with your child.

Be a learner yourself!

Ask the Right QuestionsWhat have you tried?Is there another way to look at the problem?Can you explain this to me?What makes sense so far?Is there another way to think about it?Is this like another problem that you have worked on?What are you trying to do/solve/find out?Student AssessmentsStudents will be assessed in Grades 3-5, 6-8, and 11 using Smarter Balanced Assessments.

Smarter Balanced is an adaptive assessment taken on the computer. All schools are being reviewed now to ensure that the technology is ready for this assessment.

Our current process of Universal Screening using the Scholastic Reading (SRI) and Scholastic Math Inventories (SMI) helps to prepare our students for this new assessment system.
